Hello gang

 

Looking for some advice, I received a PCN from Cambridgeshire County Council last Sunday for reason "Parked without payment of the parking charge - Code 11)

 

I had bought a ticket for the period in question but a gust of wind it must have slipped it off the dashboard as I closed my door.

 

I still have my ticket and I was wondering if I have a case to appeal and if there is a template you suggest I could use? I have never appealed before - never actually had a PCN before.

 

It's for £50 but will be reduced to £25 if I pay within 14 days, which is next Sunday.

 

Thanks for your help

 

Jameson

 

Thanks

If y ou have your ticket that covers the time, i would appeal and send a copy of the ticket as evidence.

 

Unless the sign said it must be displayed clearly, then you should be in the clear.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

 

 

If my advice helps you, click the star icon at the bottom of my post and feel free to say thanks

I'm not up to speed with code 11, but normally, a pay and display sign does not state that you have to display a ticket, so an appeal on that basis would fail.

 

 

 

A better line of appeal might just be a polite letter acknowledging the contravention and explaining the situation. You may get a discretionery cancel. And, as advised, include a copy of your ticket, front and back.

Thanks renegadeimp & Jamberson

 

I think I do recall that the signs say that a ticket must be displayed.

 

I will write to them and explain - see what they say.

parking adjudicator decisions on slipped tickets are numerous so an explanation along with a COPY of your ticket and a polite request to ask them to cancel as the actual breach may be considered de minimis bearing in mind you had paid and attempted to fulfil the conditions.

It won't be considered de minimis, although it may succeed as a discretionery cancel.

 

Jameson - if you haven't appealed yet, could you post the exact location so we can look at the signs.
